    Probably coming from the storm drains with the rain we had.

    That last comment cracked me up. The smell went well into the retek office building very strong on the 4th floor.

    Every building downtown minneapolis smells like sewer gas. I remember when I worked at the Zapata on Hennepin ave and I nearly puked everytime I went downstairs. The city has some serious sewer problems
